I'm going with slub_min_objects=1 and slub_max_order=0. A quick glance
of the source shows the calculation as

for (order = max(min_order,
fls(min_objects * size - 1) - PAGE_SHIFT);
order <= max_order; order++) {
so the max_order is inclusive not exclusive. This will force the order-0
allocations I think you are looking for.
